Compilation of Raleigh cigarette television commercials from 1959.

Pardon me folks
Ten ads in eight minutes with no repeats. Spruiking the benefits of Raleigh coupons. Some feature the line "Pardon me folks, what would you be missing if you didn't smoke Raleigh". Then things disappear.
Two short TV sponsor spots for McKenzie Raiders introduced by Richard Carlton are at 04.30.
Mediocre quality video and audio, the latter sounding as if it has been put through phasing. No sound after 07.30.
